Google Removes Fake FAU-G Apps from Play Store

FAU-G is a multiplayer game developed by nCore.


FAU-G the Indian online battleground game has been officially announced to be launched November 30 in the country. But ahead of the launch, there are several fake mobile games appearing on Google Play Store to mislead users. Now, Google has removed all these fake gaming apps from the Play Store.

Fake FAU-G Removed from Google Play Store

The news is confirmed by Vishal Gondal the founder of nCORE Games the game developing company behind FAU-G. “Since @Google is concerned about the sanity of the App Store it will be great if they can remove all the fake FAU-G Game apps @nCore_games from its store before taking down @Paytm used & loved by millions @vijayshekhar,” reads Gondal’s tweet. 

To recall, FAU-G is a multiplayer game developed by nCore, which is a Bangalore-based game developing firm. The announcement of the game was done by Akshay Kumar, a popular Bollywood actor, back in September this year. The announcement was made just after PUBG Mobile got banned in the country. 

According to the announcement made by Akshay, 20 percent of the revenue made by the game will be donated to the Bharat Ke Veer: India’s Bravehearts trust. The game is said to educate the players about the real incidents faced by the Indian soldiers and their sacrifices. 

It seems that the fake apps are appearing on Google Play Store with the name of FAUG and FAU-G. However, the search giant has noticed these fake apps and removed them from the Play Store. Now there is no app available on both the search terms. 

The game developers announced that the game will be up for play in November, but the month is almost passed and we are entering December. The curious fans are still waiting for the game and we have no clue when the company is planning to launch the game. 

Meanwhile, PUBG Mobile India version is also said to be launched by the end of this year. If that turned out to be true then FAU-G might lose the opportunity of adding more players to the subscriber base as most of them will be back to PUBG Mobile.
